The 8A’s of dementia describe the symptoms of dementia that will affect how a person living with dementia will think and act. In this session, we will explain the 8A’s, known as anosognosia, amnesia, agnosia, aphasia, apraxia, apathy, altered perception, and attentional deficits in more simple terms and explore how they affect a person’s day to day behaviour. 

Who should attend: Care partners, family, and friends supporting persons living with dementia
